If a student comes from a previous school or college with an office 365 subscription installed on their laptop you must use these instructions to remove the old license from the computer.

Step 1: Remove the Identities registry key

Ensure all Office applications are closed

Open Regedit > right-click run as administrator

Navigate to HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Office\16.0\Common\Identity\

Delete the Identities key and all subkeys.

Step 2: Delete all activation's for Office via command prompt

Start > type CMD > right click command prompt and choose run as administrator

type: cd "\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Office\Office16" and press enter

type: cscript ospp.vbs /dstatus and press enter

type: cscript ospp.vbs /unpkey:XXXXX (where XXXXX is equal to the last 5 characters of that showed up during the dstatus command)

Repeat the previous step for all installed license until it says there are no licenses installed.

Open Word and it should ask for sign in.

To check what account is registered from within Word, click File -> Account and ensure the "Belongs to:"  account matches their UF email address.

If it does not, restart the steps above.
